for declassification and so. i don't mean to say the atomic energy act is the question. what's the answer? atomic energy act of 1954. no. i think it's a large, you know, where i think john and i part company, i don't think is sort of oh, this is how it is. this is how it has been and shall be. and therefore we should accept it. i think there are parts that will be intelligence. potter stewart gave a great speech in 1974, the media is going to want to obtain classified information and the government wants to try to stop them. that's not going to change. we shouldn't be surprised by that. i think we have to have a serious investigation how much less the public knows. about what the government's up to. and what role congress and then through congress the court can play in resituating that. that's where i would start. >> do you think the american public really believes now it doesn't know that much about what going on. seriously, they know about torture, they know about rendition, they know about whatever we want to say about guantanamo, i mean, they know about the predator drone killings they may no

running it, but i'm also an energy person as was the middle east person. it takes a long time to train people to know how to run these things, or to work them for fixing but if you just pulled out of the factories you going to have a collapsing economy that will drag it right back into instability. this is going to be a very difficult trade off. with regard to the country splitting up, lebanonization, i would hope that would not happen. if there is a kurdish group in the north that wants to separate out, i can pretty much assure you that turks would not be welcoming of that concept. so that might cause some difficulties. there may be some warlord for a while, the brutality of assad kept things in check for a long time. what would israel gain from a conflict? as far as i can see, it's losing on all sides on this one. it's in a very insecure area. much more than at any time in its history. >> that the organization if you of this region is something which -- from is a lot of people see different patterns. for example, with iraq breakup to a sunni stand, as she is down? and yet you think a
's energy sector except by a reigning firms themselves. international firms have pulled out in droves, and not only investors and also suppliers of basic parts, equipment and services due to not only u.s. but also european union come japanese, south korea and other sanctions. the net effect is that iran has become a marginal player in the international oil industry, and if their current trajectory continues, it is on its way to being nearly eliminated as a player in that industry entirely. however the effective sanctions on iran's energy sector will make it harder for iran to return to its position in the industry if there is, if there is a nuclear deal and if the international community wants to send you sanctions. the energy sanctions are taking a severe toll on iran's economy. everyone is aware of the plummeting value of the trend for. i can do little more closely. i try to look at their hard currency reserves and if i understand that those reserves have fallen to about $70 billion from a level of about $105 billion at the end of 2011. trita talked about the proverbial cup of corn
